We think Earth Day rocks! So, we went searching for a little inspiration to share with our students, families, and readers.
And… We found some wonderful ideas to teach children to appreciate the environment and music at the same time on the blog Let’s Lasso the Moon.
Author and mother, Zina, took her children on a wilderness walk to collect materials and was inspired to make several fun rhythm instruments – love it!
Rhythmic play is an excellent foundation to learning any musical instrument. At The Children’s School of Music, we integrate rhythm activities in all of our lessons at every age group. It’s critical for early childhood classes, and our older piano students and guitar students practice advanced rhythms weekly
Celebrate Earth Day1 Take some inspiration from Zina and her family, and try to make a simple paper plate tambourine, wrapping paper roll rain stick, stick marimba, and nature shakers this week! Read the article and how-to here.
